I always forget \\HOSTNAME/c$ when I need to use it.

Plus I was bored

Script Function: To open root on a remote system

I always forget how to open C:/ on a remote machine,

aka run this: \\HOSTNAME/c$

So I made this.

#ce ----------------------------------------------------------------------------


Opt("RunErrorsFatal", 1)

Opt("MustDeclareVars", 1)


Func main()

Local $hostname

Local $cmd

Local $result

Local $msg

;;; Prompt for Hostname

$msg = "To open C:/ on a remote machine " & @CRLF & "enter its hostname or IP Address." & @CRLF & @CRLF & "Leave it blank to open yours."

$hostname = InputBox("Prompt for Hostname", $msg)

;;; If the user enters no hostname, then use localhost

If $hostname == "" Then

$hostname = @ComputerName


;;; Running $cmd

$cmd = "Start " & "\\" & $hostname & "/c$"

$result = RunWait(@ComSpec & " /c " & $cmd, "", @SW_HIDE)

;Success: Returns the exit code of the program that was run. Success == 0

If $result <> 0 Then

ConsoleWriteError("Error: RunWait() returned a bad exit code: " & $result & @CRLF)


ConsoleWrite($cmd & @CRLF)
